I'm extremely pleased with my sugar-free baking efforts this week--I started with an easy recipe for Believe it or Not (no-flour) Peanut Butter Cookies, made a couple of substitutions, and came out with cookies that are quick, easy, and delicious.
- 1 c peanut butter
- 1 c Splenda
- 1/2 c powdered milk
- 1 t vanilla extract
- 1 egg
Measure your dry ingredients into a medium sized mixing bowl, then add the remaining ingredients and mix well. (Hint: Spray the measuring cup lightly with cooking spray before you measure the peanut butter and it'll be much easier to remove.)
Shape into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet. Flatten with a fork dipped in water in the traditional criss-cross pattern. Bake at 350 for about 8 minutes until cookies are set and very lightly browned around the edges. Be careful with these--it's hard to judge the color when they're brown to start with!
I ate some packaged sugar-free peanut cookies recently, and these are way better! Everyone in my family gave them the thumbs up, so I'll definitely be making these again!
How about you? What sugar-free recipes or products have you tried lately?
